That's the score on the homophobe issues in California, Florida, Arizona, and Arkansas (adoption).
California Proposition 8 to ban gay marriage (84% of precincts counted):
4,605,065 - 51.8%
4,293,068 - 48.2%
I talked to my nephew last night. He voted no but his mother, my sister, voted yes (and had a Yes on Prop 8 yard sign).
A thought - Those who supported measures like this thinking they were defending marriage actually just degraded it by saying some people can tell others whom they may and may not marry.
I want to be furious but I am overwhelmingly sad that so many people can be misled by the loud, repeated, insistent lies and distortions of some.
As for the liars.... well, you know.
